than that. technology is advanced. they're going the start as close as possible to the event, to the explosions and move out from there. so, my nat data first and then slowly but surely, they'll get through the rest of those photos and video. over time, but it will be weeks. they will have a better sense of what might be connected to other factors, like the bags that they think carried the bombs. so i think it's great, get this now, because it's difficult to be preserved. >> is this, is that an approach that has evolved over the past 12 years? is that not the way they would have approached this before 9/11? before we had this huge investment in intelligence since then? >> first, we simply didn't have access to all this video and photo technology that is ubiquitous today. there are far more video cameras, hoemts and restaurants and people are walking around with iphones. the second is a much greater ability to deal with these massive amounts of data and the technology there has improved and the u.s. government and the intelligence community has been on the forefront. >> is the
the digital technology with the phone company how many calls were being made at the moment that 9 photograthe photograph w. there may be some process of elimination. some of the other calls could be further out. there's a chance they could say it's one of these few numbers, one of these several numbers and they might be able to narrow it down. if they can, the commanders have to make a decision and that is, and you got right to the point of it, maybe we ought to keep this close. if we can narrow it down and i.d. the guy, we want to do that without notifying the world. if they can't identify him within a reasonable amount of time, they are going to have to gain public support by showing that photograph by showing who that guy is. >> michael, what do you have on the cell phone? do you know anything? have you got any sources on this? >> reporter: no, but i would think they would need to recover the cell phone to trace it to an individual. i think it would be hard based simply on the tower because, remember, there were a lot of people in that area during that time. that's a lot -- and my assumpti
in using every bit of law enforcement technology to track you down. >> young that washington has a role beyond the president simply saying as he has done, ordering everybody into maximum cooperation and high gear here? >> the president is going to visit here. i think he has that role, as well. i think it's going to be very meaningful to the people here. >> thursday morning. >> in massachusetts. >> it's going to mean the world to the state that he is here. i think just lifting people's spirits, giving them some hope for the future. i think that's the message in addition to ensuring everyone that he is going to direct this crime investigation that his administration will ensure someone is caught. we are hopeful for the future and i think he knows how to deliver that message. >> we have a lot of plaques, monuments and statues in this town but i don't think we need anything to remind us of what happened. >> we will remember it every patriots day for eternity. that will be the day that we remember. we honor those who passed away as we celebrate the marathon and the red sox playing that morni
if it takes a few years longer. >> mr. cavanaugh it seems to me because of modern technology and the fact everyone on earth seems to have a cell phone with them, camera with them, recording device, we're getting a jump perhaps. when you see a picture of a bag sitting in front of a storm fence and then you see it taken directly after the explosion and you see the smoke rising diagonally, anybody watching that can see how it's moving off to the upper left, you've got a pretty interesting lead to take a look at. how does that kind of information sort of pops on to the screen from an amateur do to the investigation? >> chris, it's a tremendous value to the investigator. there were many bombings over 3 1/2 decades. we had no picture at all. so you had this bombing, bombings, that was done in the crowded city center for the purpose of theater, terrorism theater. you had worldwide media. you had everybody with their electronic devices in the digital age. there's going to be pictures of the bomber. so when you're in command of a case like this, sad as the case is, it sure can be helpful to you to
of ongoing debate we've had for years with facial recognition technology and how much of that we aught to be having in this country which raises all sorts of civil liberty questions and big brother questions. i think this episode that we've witnessed just this afternoon could become a very big factor in that debate about facial recognition technology in this country. >> i think you're absolutely right. i think as we see things up fold, it'll spark a number of larger debates but i was wondering, michael, do have you a sense of a time line when this information came to law enforcement, when they figured thought was a significant lead, where we are in that time line now? >> it was a eureka moment when they found the video of from we lef that lord & taylor store a couple lhundred yards from here showing the individual dropping off the bag. that was not something they had yesterday. from all our sourcing, through last night, through this morning. there were no breakthroughs. so my guess is they got that at some point early today. and it filtered up and they matched it up with the video from
you identify -- do you look through mug shots? how do you find that person? >> the technology has improved tremendously in terms of facial recognition technology and they are using that matching images on video at the scene to any faces that might be in databases and running that to see if there's any sort of match. another way is, okay, here's an image that we've got. let's go back to others who we know that were at the scene and who were at businesses nearby and show a picture. that would be routine police work that is done. that's many, many aspects and i'm sure there are others that they are not going to talk to us about as they attempt to track down who planted these devices. >> help me here because all the time we're talking about union station or 30th street station in philly or anywhere, there's a big stein and an announcement. why don't they let the people see the person and say, i know this i goo, i know this woman? i assume it's a guy. >> that's part of the debate that's been going on all day today as you look at the mess that went on this afternoon with some of the bad
in this age of technology that they're able to get so much incoming information from so many different sources. on the other hand, as you say, you then have to make sure that you are whittling that down to the right sources of information. >> that's right. in this case on the video front and the photographic front, they've got a huge advantage. they know where the explosions were. you can actually work out from there. krou don't know where the videos and photos came from the public. but in terms of buildings, once you have a picture of anyone suspicious, you move out and you, you know, rapidly moving circles. how long would it take if someone was walking? let's look at that video camera. you try to piece this together. that's what what was done by the british officials after the bombing on 7/7 in 2005 and they were fundamentally able to track them all the way back to their homes. >> kevin, we just learned today the name of the third tragic fatality in this bombing. ling si lu, a graduate student from china studying statistics at boston university. i don't need to tell you the emotions around t
homegrown extremists. the problem is that that technology has really widespread. it is also been talked about by domestic extremist groups. so although it is predominantly used by al qaeda associated overseas, we really can't draw that conclusion now. >> one of the most fascinating part of the story is usually when there is a big terrorism event, a group or people come forward and claim responsibility so the fact that there's been silence on this is a little bit perplexing. give us details on why they would or wouldn't do that? >> as a general matter, when al qaeda has been associated with an attack and it's an international terrorism group, that overseas group has taken credit. we haven't seen that. and my estimation is every day that passes that we don't see a claim from overseas, it makes it more and more likely that it's a domestic group. quite often domestic groups have not taken credit for it because taking credit for it would make them a much higher profile target for the fbi to go and find them. >> i want to get to the ricin story. do you -- it is strange to you that there isn't

about and propaganda that targets accomplish speakers. i would warn that this technology as you implied is something that is very well-known in domestic circles as well on a variety of websites. although we commonly see it in the al qaeda world, we don't think it's distinctive enough to draw conclusions at this point. >> do you get the impression that the person who made this bomb is trying to cover their tracks? meaning this is not somebody looking for attention, but covering their tracks because they want to do it again or covering their tracks for another reason that they are trying to stay in hiding? >> i think so. i think the lack of a plan of responsibility from outside the u.s. and international terrorist groups or at least of lack of a credible claim starts to make one suspect more and more as hours and days pass that this was an individual or a group operating solely here in the united states. that doesn't tell you if it's anti-government and a domestic group and inspired by al qaeda, but as time goes on, a lack of a plan of responsibility from overseas, you do have to look mor
